Abstract

This article challenges the idea that international education only has positive spillover effects on the students going through it, assessing students’ capacity to understand and, if possible, explore new working opportunities in the host country. It discusses to what extent an international education experience and regular exposure to an alternative educational, social, and working environment could provide opportunities for students to broaden and deepen their views and perceptions of the world, and to use cultural capital gained from international mobility to increase their employability in the global job market.

Based on a study conducted among a small group of Chinese students based in France, this article highlights when, how, and under which circumstances students’ mobility capital is understood and explored as a new source of economic opportunities, discussing motivations and integration in the experiences of Chinese international students.

摘要

本文通过评估留学生们在东道国探索新工作机会的能力,挑战了国际教育只对国际留学生产生积极影响的观念。本文研究了国际教育经历和定期接触不同的教育、社会和职业环境会在多大程度上使学生们拓宽视野和深化他们对世界的认识,并利用通过国际流动所获得的文化资本来提高他们在全球就业市场的就业能力。

基于对一小群在法国的中国留学生的研究,本文强调了学生的流动资本何时、如何以及在何种情况下被理解并被利用为新的经济机会来源,并讨论了中国学生们的出国留学动机和融入法国社会的经历。
